It’s Cute & Cuddly Critters today!

I was sad to see these two sets on the retirement list that feature both cute and cuddly critters in them. They have been two of my favorites to use. After all who doesn’t like animals, right?

First the Life in the Forest stamp set (133848/133851). Here are some fun cards I’ve made with this set.

And the Little Buddy Birthday stamp set (133860/133863).

And a extended swing card.

It’s sad to say goodbye but the good news is you can still order these two sets until June 2nd.

Little Buddy Birthday

Today kicks off the 2014 Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City and although I’m not able to attend this year since I’ve got family visiting, I still wanted to join in the fun. So todays card is one I made for a convention swap that I am participating in with my fellow demonstrators.

This card uses the fun bold colors of our NEW Blendabilities Markers and the Little Buddy Birthday stamp set. I just love the cute little images in this set. They are fun and whimsical and perfect to color using our Blendabilities.

Little Buddy Birthday

Little Buddy Birthday was one of those sets that I knew I just had to have for all those little tykes in my life. The images are just too cute and I knew they would be great for coloring with our new alcohol Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers.

Little Buddy Birthday

Here is a card I made for a special little monster in our life. LOL.

Little Buddy Birthday Extended Flip Card (2)

I knew I wanted to use the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers since it would give me a bright bold image and I added some Rich Razzleberry accents too. This color choice gave me my starting point for the card.

I used the Circle Card Thinlits Die and wanted a little extra space so I created an extended flip card. You can see my how to video HERE.

Next I cut a circle out of Rich Razzleberry to add some more movement using my Circle Collection Framelits. I simply chose two of the circles and layered them together on my Magnetic Platform before running them through the Big Shot.

So what do you think? I’m hoping this movement card brings a smile to our little buddy’s face when he open it.
